This summer bring the whole family over to the Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Library to learn about NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement Mission. During some of our Family Fun Day Sundays we will be learning about the work this mission does with hands-on activities! All events will be held in the Children's Room on the second floor of the library. Children of all ages and their parents and caregivers are welcome to attend.
